Global expansion for Centre-based training company Faraday
Faraday provides specialist electrical training
A specialist training provider that is relocating to the Wilton Centre is in talks to deliver a range of bespoke courses in Azerbaijan and Abu Dhabi.
The Faraday Centre, which provides electrical training services, is in discussion with one of the major multi-national oil and gas companies to deliver several weeks of High Voltage Authorised Person training on site in Azerbaijan and is designing and delivering a special ‘Train The Trainer’ programme to support the country's workforce nationalisation scheme.
A similar High Voltage Authorised person training programme is also planned to be delivered in Abu Dhabi to the national gas producing company on Das Island at the end of May.
The Faraday Centre general manager, Suhail Mitoubsi, said that the weaker pound currently provides British companies with opportunities to promote and sell British goods and services abroad and is something which UK exporters should be exploiting.
“The international market represents a significant contribution to our overall sales revenue, whether delivering our electrical training services here on Teesside or abroad. Some of our courses were delivered as far as Australia in the east and Jamaica in the west.
“A substantial number of our overseas trainees undertake various training programmes at our centre on Teesside. The new training facilities at Wilton Centre give us greater opportunity to expand our training services nationally and internationally, as we are also recruiting additional lecturers.
“Progress has been made over the past few months at the new facilities with a substantial investment in refurbishing and installing electrical practical training equipment and once fully complete it is likely to be the largest privately owned training centre of its kind in the UK.”
